Key difficulties in bedrock environments include:
  • Understanding groundwater hydraulics,
  • Geochemistry,
  • Contaminant distribution,
  • Matrix diffusion and
  • The impacts on remedial success.
Tools used to develop appropriate conceptual site models will be discussed; including flute systems, the use of tracers, and natural attenuation assessments.
